THE TEMPLE OF HEPHAESTUS, ATHENS, GREECE

The Temple of Hephaestus, (Hephaestus was the patron god of metal working and craftsmanship) is one of the city's best preserved monuments, standing on the Colonus Agoraeus hill which dominates the site of the Ancient Agora. It's construction started in 449 BC, and some scholars believe the building was not completed for some three decades, funds and workers having being redirected towards the Parthenon.
